The Risk Management Dashboard
Risk Management is a module within the KnowBe4 KCM Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) platform that is available to Gold and Platinum subscriptions. This feature is designed to simplify the processes of identifying, assessing, monitoring, and mitigating the various risks faced by your organization. See our Risk Management Overview article for an introduction to risk management with KCM GRC.
The Risk Dashboard provides an overview of the Risks you've added to your KCM GRC account's Risk Management module.
After logging in to your account, navigate to the Risk Dashboard by clicking Risk Management, then Risk Dashboard from the navigation panel on the left-hand side of your console.
This section of the Dashboard displays the top ten Risks faced by your organization, based on Inherent Risk Scores. See our Risk Management Overview article for more information on Inherent Risk Scores.
Top Riskiest Tags
This section provides an overview of the tagged Risks having the highest combined Inherent Risk Scores–and therefore pose the biggest threats to your organization. You can create custom Risk Tags in your Risk Settings and use them to better organize and easily locate Risks in your Risk Register. For instance, you could create tags for your sister companies, subsidiaries, different locations, or for your individual departments. See this section of our Managing Account Settings article to learn more about creating Risk tags.
The table on the left side includes the following details:
- Tag: The title of the Tag.
- Tagged Risk Items: The number of Risks with the associated Tag.
- Score: The combined Inherent Risk Score of all Risks with the associated Tag.
- Average: The average Inherent Risk Score of all Risks with the associated Tag.
The bar graph displays the Risk Tag titles and the combined total Inherent Risk Scores.
This section of the Dashboard includes two interactive heat maps displaying a matrix for each of the two Risk Score arrays in your account: Inherent and Residual. See here to learn more about configuring Inherent and Residual Risk Scores in KCM GRC.
Risk Category Overview
This section of the Dashboard provides a breakdown of your Risks by category, in order to see what percentage of your Risks are contained in each category of your Risk Register. See our KCM GRC Risk Management: Risk Register article for details about your account's Risk Register.
